Seahawks rebound vs. punchless 49ers

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson scrambles away from 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks during the first half.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Russell Wilson threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett late in the first half, Marshawn Lynch jumped the pile for a 1-yard score, and the Seahawks beat the 49ers 20-3 for their fourth straight win in the NFC West rivalry.

The Seahawks whipped San Francisco in Levi's Stadium on a Thursday in prime time 11 months after cornerback Richard Sherman chomped turkey on the field here last Thanksgiving night after a 19-3 victory.

Wilson completed 10 of his first 12, finishing with 235 yards. He was sacked five times to push his NFL-leading total to 31.

Lynch ran for 122 yards despite vomiting on the sideline in the first half as Seattle won its first road game in four tries.

FRIEND'S DEATH SPURS WILFORK: Texans defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is speaking out after a childhood friend was shot and killed Sunday by a police officer in South Florida. Corey Jones, who is black, died after he was shot three times by a plainclothes officer near his broken-down vehicle in Palm Beach Gardens, according to his lawyers. The police chief has said the officer was "suddenly confronted by an armed subject," but it comes after a number of high-profile cases involving the use of force by officers against African-Americans. "I have nothing against (law enforcement), but at the same time you're dealing with somebody that was shot dead," Wilfork said. "We have to figure it out as a society." Wilfork, 33, is from Boynton Beach, about 20 miles south of Palm Beach Gardens, and said he was so close to Jones that he considers him family and that he plans to visit his relatives when Houston plays at Miami on Sunday.

AGHOLOR, COOPER SIT: Eagles receivers Nelson Agholor and Riley Cooper sat out of practice for the second consecutive day. Agholor, a former Berkeley Prep standout and a first-round pick in April out of USC, suffered a leg injury against the Saints on Oct. 11. Cooper, a former Clearwater Central Catholic and Gator standout, injured his knee Monday against the Giants.

BEARS: Jeremiah Ratliff was cut a day after the defensive lineman had an animated discussion with general manager Ryan Pace. The exchange between occurred outside team headquarters. The club replaced Ratliff by reaching a deal with free agent defensive lineman Ziggy Hood, a 2009 first-round pick by Pittsburgh.

CHARGERS: Mayor Kevin Faulconer said San Diego's push to build a new stadium for the team took "a huge step forward" when Gov. Jerry Brown approved an accelerated judicial review process for any lawsuits filed against the project's environmental impact report. Once enacted, the certification means any lawsuit challenging the EIR must be resolved within 270 days of the city's certifying the document. The city thinks it can open a new stadium by 2019 even if there is litigation. Chargers attorney Mark Fabiani said the 270-day certification "is unfortunately irrelevant at this point" and the "quickie EIR is fatally flawed." Fabiani walked away from negotiations in June, in large part because of concerns with the EIR. The team has focused on moving to the Los Angeles area, which will require approval by the league.

  1. A trip down memory lane of Bucs' preseason expectations

  3. For starters: Rays at Yankees, in a pretty big series


    The Rays open a challenging road trip tonight in New York, the first of four games against the wild-card leading Yankees.

    Chris Archer will be on the mound for the Rays.
  4. Bucs' O.J. Howard says in NFL, 'it's an SEC game every day'


    Bucs rookie O.J. Howard hasn't played in an NFL game yet, but he already appreciates the grind of an NFL season -- every week can be a loss, perhaps more so than in college football, where Alabama went 12-0 in nonconference, non-bowl games in his three years there.

    Bucs rookie O.J. Howard, shown playing for Alabama in the national championship game in Tampa in January, says every game in the NFL is an SEC game, with no letdowns.
  5. Bucs' Mike Evans wants his 'A' game in 4th NFL season


    Bucs receiver Mike Evans has been in the NFL for three seasons, and in two of them, he's had 12 touchdown catches, setting and then matching his own team record. He made the Pro Bowl for the first time last season, but if you ask him to grade those three years, he doesn't see an "A" product just yet.

    Bucs receiver Mike Evans, shown during an OTA workout last month, said he wouldn't give himself an "A" for any of his first three NFL seasons, despite going to the Pro Bowl and twice catching 12 touchdown passes in a season.
